We spotted writer and stylist Ally Dean wearing these “Lively” sunglasses, from Thierry Lasry’s limited-edition collaboration with Toronto eyewear boutique, Spectacle. Lasry was in town himself to launch the collab, which also includes a pair of optical frames from Harry Lary’s dubbed “Primary.” It’s the French designer’s first collaboration in Canada, and he chose to do so with a store that carries a diverse and well-curated collection of Lasry’s buzzed-about frames.
Ally’s sunglasses are made from vintage deadstock acetate from Italy, which creates a unique, mosaic-like pattern. The shape is bold and chunky, with round, gradient lenses and a slightly straighter nose bridge than most. The frames begin to butterfly along the brow-line, mirroring the butterfly textures and colours that reveal themselves upon closer inspection of the acetate. (No seriously, take a good look and let us know if you see it too).
The “Lively” retails for $485 and the “Primary” retails for $420. Both styles are available now exclusively at Spectacle.
